AIM Herbal Fiberblend Capsules
Digestive problems comprise the number
one health problem in North America. And
our bodies are becoming increasingly polluted
with toxins found in the environment and in the
foods we eat.
Getting adequate fiber and cleansing, or detoxifying,
are two often overlooked elements of maintaining
not only digestive health but also whole body
AIM Herbal Fiberblend® provides the fiber that is
often lacking in our diets and cleansing herbs. This
unique combination provides the perfect way to maintain
your digestive health, keep your digestive system
clean, and experience other benefits that are indicative
of whole body health.
Fiber has long been recognized as one of the best food
ingredients for maintaining bowel regularity and preventing
constipation. Because it normalizes bowel movements,
it can also be used to treat and manage chronic diarrhea.
(Murray 1996) Consuming fiber reduces transit time and
results in a more thorough evacuation of waste materials.
It is thought to improve all aspects of colon function.
Fiber is found only in fruits and plants. It is an indigestible
complex carbohydrate and, therefore, adds few, if
any, calories to the diet. There are two main types of fiber—
water-soluble and insoluble. Both types of fiber are required
in the daily diet, in the recommended ratio of 3:1 insoluble
fiber to water-soluble fiber. (Shikany 2000)
Water-soluble fiber dissolves in water and is found in
oat bran, legumes, psyllium, nuts, beans, pectins, and various
fruits and vegetables. It forms a bulky gel in the intestine
that regulates the flow of waste materials through the
Water-soluble fiber may lower cholesterol by preventing
the reabsorption of bile acids. Bile acids are made from cholesterol,
and after they aid fat digestion, fiber
binds with them and escorts them out of
the body. The liver then has to pull more
cholesterol from the blood. In a metaanalysis
of 67 controlled trials, it was found that some water-soluble fiber
lowers the total cholesterol and the bad
cholesterol (LDL) without affecting the good cholesterol (HDL).
(Brown 1999) A similar double-blind study found that psyllium
lowered LDL cholesterol without affecting HDL cholesterol.
Water-soluble fiber may also stabilize blood sugar by
slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates into the
blood. Plus, it can lower blood sugar levels. Researchers
have found that increasing fiber intake results in a decrease
in the body’s need for insulin. (Nuttall 1993) Psyllium supplementation,
in particular, has been shown to improve
blood sugar levels in diabetics. (Anderson 2000)
Insoluble fiber cannot be dissolved in water, meaning that
our bodies cannot digest it. This type of fiber includes the
undissolvable parts of plant walls and is found in greatest
amounts in cereals, brans, and vegetables. The primary function
of insoluble fiber is to collect water that increases stool
bulk in the large intestine. This promotes bowel movement,
and as the bulk works through the intestine, it scours the
intestinal walls of waste matter, reducing the risk of colonrelated
Fiber in the diet
Most nutritionists recommend consuming 25 to 40
grams of fiber per day. The average North American consumes
only 10 to 15 grams of fiber daily.
A variety of studies have found that in populations with
high-fiber diets, the incidences of colon cancer, appendicitis,
and diverticulosis are very low. Industrialized countries,
which largely have diets high in fat and low in fiber,
have high incidences of these diseases.
Because fiber is low in calories, it can be added to your
diet, providing a greater feeling of satiety without significantly
increasing your caloric intake. The fiber found in
fruits and plants serves as a source of complex carbohydrate,
which most nutritionists consider to be a healthy
choice. In addition, fiber’s ability to stabilize blood sugar
may also curb the desire to snack. In other words, you may
find yourself eating less. This is beneficial in weight-loss
Cleansing, detox, and herbs
The concept of body cleansing has been with us for
centuries. Today, many health practitioners recognize the
importance of keeping the body in harmony to prevent
sickness; it is often referred to as cleansing or detoxification.
Many health practitioners believe that as our world
becomes increasingly polluted with toxins found in the
environment and in the foods we eat, cleansing become
more important. The increased popularity of high-protein
diets further promotes the need to detoxify.
Toxins undermine our health. Elson Haas, M.D., in his
book Staying Healthy with Nutrition (1992), defines a toxin
simply as “any substance that creates irritating and/or
harmful effects in the body, undermining our health or
stressing our biochemical or organ functions.” More
specifically, a body overloaded with toxins can result in a
number of symptoms. These include constipation, stomach
bloat, poor digestion, gas, fatigue, weight gain, excessive
mucus, poor concentration, headaches, poor skin,
poor memory, depression, body odor, and bad breath.
Some health practitioners relate toxins to specific diseases.
(Buist 1988, Bland 1997) They believe that chronic
fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, and
fibromyalgia (muscle and joint pain) may be related to
The body does have a system in place for detoxifying
harmful toxins. The most important cleansing organ is the
liver. Eliminative channels include the bowels (the digestive
system), kidneys, skin, lungs, and lymphatic system.
When the body is not overburdened with toxins and is
performing well, blood carries toxins to the liver, which
uses enzymes to detoxify harmful substances. They are rendered
harmless or converted into a water-soluble form that
is eliminated via the urine or feces.
Unfortunately, this system can handle only so many toxins
and was designed for “natural” toxins, not the manmade
ones we have to deal with today. For example, protection
against an age-old toxin—alcohol—is built into our
genes. One gene codes an enzyme to convert alcohol into
substances that the body can use or excrete.
Our body does not, however, always know how to handle
the new toxins in our lives. It cannot understand how
to excrete them, and they may accumulate to harmful
quantities or be converted to odd, unknown substances
that can interfere with metabolism. According to the textbook
Nutrition Concepts and Controversies (Sizer 2000),
this can result in cancers or birth defects.
Today, there are different ways to cleanse the body.
Among these are baths and hydrotherapy, diet and nutrition,
herbs, chelation, and exercise. Herbal supplementation,
often in conjunction with other methods, has been
used for ages and is one of the most popular ways to
cleanse. Herbs are said to promote cleansing by eliminating
toxins from the organs and systems of the body.
